Let me tell you a little bit about Zola Nene. Not only is she an extremely talented chef, TV show host and cookbook author, she is also one of the friendliest and bubbliest people I have ever met! To add to her incredible achievements, recently Zola featured on Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted where she teaches the multi-Michelin starred chef how to cook authentic Zulu cuisine!A few weeks ago I bought Zola's second book - Simply Zola. It is absolutely packed with a wide range of delicious, approachable recipes. The chapter that really caught my eye (apart from the desserts, of course)...

Sponsored. Mille feuille literally means "a thousand leaves" and refers to all the paper-thin layers formed by the puff pastry in this classic French dessert. Although it may look intimidating, a mille feuille is actually not difficult to make. Nine times out of ten I will use shop-bought puff pastry, but when I have a bit of time on my hands, I find making my own really rewarding! So I have included both options here for you. Rough puff pastry is very similar to puff pastry in flavour and texture, but instead of using slabs of butter when folding, grated butter is used which...

I had some pomegranates leftover from a shoot recently and instead of a dessert, I decided to make something a little different - a cocktail! If you haven't tasted a pomegranate before, they have a sweet, slightly tart flavour similar to cranberries or even cherries. Although buying pomegranate juice will certainly save you some time, juicing a fresh pomegranate means you can reserve a few of the seeds/arils to garnish your drink (they look like little gems!). And that you get to enjoy the beautiful bold pink colour at its best.! When combined with rum, ginger ale and a...

When paging through my copy of Bibby's Kitchen - The essence of good food by Diane Bibby, the first recipe I wanted to try was an obvious one! I love the sophisticated simplicity of a perfectly made panna cotta, and I was intrigued to try the peppered sherry caramel sauce.The recipe did not disappoint! The panna cottas are deliciously rich with just the right amount of wobble, and the addition of roasted white chocolate is pure genius. A boozy hit of sherry, plus a little heat from the pepper tempers the sweet panna cottas perfectly.This book is an absolute must-have...

Sponsored.Apple crumble is one of my absolute favourite desserts. Especially in winter, when I love to eat it warm from the oven, with a generous side of custard! Even I can’t quite justify eating this on a daily basis though, so I had to find a way to get my apple crumble fix in another form.These Apple Crumble Muffins are packed with chunky fresh apple pieces and a subtle cinnamon flavour! They have a lovely soft texture, but the best part is that they’re topped with a sweet, buttery crumble made with Bakers® Good Morning Bran Rusks. That’s right, not only are these...

Sponsored.When you can’t decide what dessert to have, I say – have both! This tart is a delicious hybrid of Baklava and Custard Tart. By combining the two into one spectacular dessert, you get to enjoy ALL the textures in every single bite. Crisp, buttery pastry, thick, creamy custard and crunchy, syrupy nuts. Not to mention the flavour combination of honey, cinnamon and that glorious vanilla flavour that you can only get from Ultra Mel custard! If you can restrain yourself, this tart really improves after a day of standing. This allows for the custard to set up nicely, and...

When Bakers®  sent me a box of their Good Morning Bran Rusks the first thing I did was put the kettle on! I mean, rusks are made for dunking right? After enjoying my rusk with a cup of tea, I got to thinking that making a delicious and slightly fancy hot beverage to enjoy with my rusks would be a great incentive to get out of bed on a cold winter’s morning.  The Dalgona Coffee craze took the internet by storm earlier this year when a South Korean actor compared the taste and texture of a whipped coffee he had to the...

Sponsored.What better way to take advantage of winter’s oranges, grapefruits and mandarins than to make a bright and beautiful cake that really shows them off? As impressive as it looks, this upside down citrus yoghurt cake is surprisingly easy to make. In fact, the striking slices of citrus fruit do all the hard work! After arranging the slices at the bottom of the cake tin, they are covered in a syrup, then the cake batter, then baked all together. The fruit slices cook in the syrup resulting in a sweet and sticky marmalade-like topping.The cake batter uses NutriDay Double Cream...

I'm a big fan of frangipane tarts and have been meaning to try a chocolate version for a while. Frangipane is a sweet pastry cream made with ground almonds that is usually used in baked tarts along with fruit. This pear and chocolate frangipane tart recipe is made with a chocolate pastry as well as a chocolate frangipane filling so it will certainly keep the chocoholics happy! With pears being in season and a wonderful companion to both chocolate and almonds, it was a no-brainer to use them in this tart. The result is a rich and sophisticated dessert...

Happy World Chocolate Day! It seemed only right that I share a delicious chocolate recipe with you today. However, this recipe is more than just another chocolate recipe. It may actually be my new favourite recipe. In. The. World. A few years ago, I posted a Milo Cake with Condensed Milk Icing recipe. It went viral and is still one of my most popular recipes on the blog! A friend suggested I convert the recipe into brownies, and what a bright idea that was! I already knew that the flavour combo was a winner (I mean who doesn't love...
